No one sings a heartache song like Mary! The queen of Hip-hop Soul is renowned for conveying female anguish in her songs, and “Whole Damn Year” is no exception; as she sings about about being hurt in a relationship, the video portrays the ultimate relationship “pain”: domestic violence.
The clip focuses on violence not only on women, but domestic violence towards men as well, in this case, in regards to disapproval of a same sex relationship. However, the issues inflicting the characters ends happily, giving hope to sufferers that they don't have to be victims forever.
You can find this single on Mary’s 13th solo album The London Sessions available now. Purchase above!
